Windsol Solution


Hybrid wind and solar powered system for electricity production

Lack of electricity and irregular access to water is an everyday problem for 96% of the rural population in Sierra Leone

The project empowers rural communities with electrification and farm irrigation solutions while eliminating greenhouse gas production. A recycled hybrid system of windmill and solar power will provide safe electricity, while helping farmers to increase agricultural productivity through year-round access to water for food production. It is an affordable solution combating climate change by utilising carbon-free, renewable energy solutions.
